TURKSOY head looks forward to attending events in Azerbaijan’s Shusha

    POLITICS  21 June 2024 - 15:02

    Secretary General of the International Organisation of Turkic Culture (TURKSOY) Sultan Raev has said that TURKSOY is preparing for three grand events in Azerbaijan’s Shusha city.

    “An unofficial summit of the Organisation of Turkic States will be held in Shusha at the initiative of Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev in a month,” Caliber.Az reports citing Raev’s message for the local media.

    “This is a great initiative to further strengthen the Turkic world. We are currently preparing for this summit,” Raev said, adding that TURKSOY will also take part in the events which are held by  the Islamic World Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (ICESCO) in connection with the announcement of Shusha city in 2024 as the “Cultural Capital of the Islamic World”. The Shusha Global Media Forum will be held in early July, which we are also preparing for.

    Raev noted that Azerbaijan is one of the most active participants in the activity of TURKSOY.

    “Azerbaijan is one of the driving forces of TURKSOY and takes an active part in the activity of our organisation,” he noted.

    Raev also expressed intention to establish cooperation with the Azerbaijan Cultural Centre, established at the Azerbaijani embassy in Türkiye.

    The International Organisation of Turkic Culture, TURKSOY, was established in 1993 upon signature of its founding agreement by the Ministers of Culture of Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan and Türkiye.

    Later on, the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus and the autonomous republics of the Russian Federation; Tatarstan, Bashkortostan, Altai, Sakha, Tyva and Khakassia as well as the Autonomous Territorial Unit of Gagauzia (Moldova) joined TURKSOY as member states with an observer status.

    For more than 25 years now, TURKSOY has been working under the auspices of the Heads of States of its member countries with their approval and appreciation.

    Since its establishment, TURKSOY has been carrying out activities to strengthen the ties of brotherhood and solidarity among Turkic peoples, transmit the common Turkic culture to future generations and introduce it to the world.

    Besides its cooperation with UNESCO and ISESCO which it shares the same principles and goals with, TURKSOY also works in close cooperation with many organizations such as the International Council for Traditional Music – ICTM, the International Society for Music Education – ISME as well as municipalities, universities and various non-governmental organizations.

    The Headquarters of TURKSOY bring intellectuals and artists of the Turkic World together.
